Transit Advocates (TATF)

What is the Transit Advocate Task Force?

The Transit Advocate Task Force (TATF) is a group of advocates who attend transit themed meetings in the Denver Metropolitan Area; these TATF members then report on their meetings and those reports will be posted on the DRMAC website to provide updated information on projects, initiatives, and policies.

Our transit advocates on behalf of DRMAC:

  • Attend transit, disability and older adults events representing DRMAC 
  • Participate in task forces, work groups, committees  
  • Provide relevant issues to DRMAC
  • Advocate for transit and disability rights for older adults 
  • Attend resource fairs

To see what they have accomplished, check the posts below!
